Instructor Benefits

Everything you need, when you need it

Everything you need to ensure academic integrity

The premier learning platform now features the Assessment Builder, the first and only assessment system built exclusively for language instructors. With Assessment Builder, you can edit existing assessment content or create your own from scratch.

Technology that works

The industry standard for reliability

Spend your time teaching, not trying to solve technology issues. With the Supersite, you’ll never have to worry about the site going down—no other publisher has our record of 99.9% uptime. And if you or your students do have technology questions, we make sure that help is available every step of way.

Time well spent

Easy to use but incredibly powerful

With the Supersite, you can easily shape the curriculum to fit your instructional goals and teaching preferences. Create, import, and manage online homework assignments, quizzes, and tests—or choose from a wealth of publisher-created content—much of which is automatically graded, allowing you to spend less time grading, and more time teaching.

Real-time insight

Manage your course with real-time insight

A comprehensive gradebook with enhanced reporting functionality makes it easy for instructors to manage courses efficiently. Diagnostics within the Supersite provide unique insight into class and student performance. With a single click, you can identify the most difficult concepts, spot vulnerable students, and make adjustments on the fly.

Student Benefits

Progress toward proficiency

Progress toward proficiency

Developed specifically for language teaching and learning, the Supersite focuses on student outcomes. We make it easy for students to identify areas for improvement, and provide them with the tools that engage and motivate them to proficiency. Helping them reach that “aha!” moment is what we do.

Flexible and convenient

Flexible and convenient

Today’s learners are constantly on the move, often balancing personal, work, and academic responsibilities. Whether they attend school full-time or take courses when they can fit them into their work schedule, it’s critical that learning takes place at a time and format that works for them. Available 24/7 on any internet-connected device, the Supersite lets students learn anywhere, anytime.

Dynamic and engaging

Dynamic and engaging

It takes more than words on a screen to catch—and keep—the attention of today’s multitasking students. We built the Supersite knowing that no two students are the same, providing a wealth of multimedia and activity types that appeal to all types of learners. From authentic short films and native-language literature, to animated grammar tutorials and episodic video—the Supersite has it all.



Because learning never stops, the Supersite is now mobile-friendly, allowing students to do their classwork and homework anywhere from their mobile devices. It is straightforward:

  • Access the internet on your mobile device
  • Go to vhlcentral and find your course
  • Complete classwork and homework—including chats and audio-recording activities

Reach your unique course objectives with the NEW Assessment Builder

Assessing students in the era of online learning is no easy feat. Between maintaining academic integrity and ensuring your students have successfully completed their course objectives, there's just so much more to think about.

We’ve created a tool that rises to the challenge: a reimagined Assessment Builder. With new features and improved functionality, Assessment Builder makes it possible for you to achieve your unique course objectives. Now you can easily combine existing content from any course or module to create a new assessment. You can also edit student facing titles and write new questions using a variety of assessment templates. Plus, with our new randomization option, each student gets a totally unique exam which means you get a little bit more peace of mind.

See what the NEW Assessment Builder can do for you!


The new Assessment Builder is a game changer. Hats off to everyone who made it happen. We had been pulling our hair out because we had been doing assessment manually; there wasn’t another way. This new feature is everything.

Enterprise makes course administration a breeze

Do you have dozens of instructors or adjuncts? Tens or hundreds of courses every semester? Hundreds or thousands of student enrollments? With Enterprise, you can design course templates and sections and deliver them to all of your instructors across the department with ease. From your dashboard, you can manage enrollments and check on student progress within each of the courses.

Building confidence and fluency

Students want to be able to communicate with others in their new language, to have meaningful and productive—not perfect—conversations. As a result, they need frequent and varied opportunities to engage in interpersonal communication activities in their learned language. The Supersite offers a wealth of communication tools—Partner Chat, Video Chat, Live Chat, and Forums—that help students lower their affective filter while providing meaningful opportunities for self-expression in authentic, real-life contexts.


LMS integration

Now our market-leading Supersite technology is easier to integrate with your learning management system (LMS) than ever before! To further enhance the integration between your Supersite courses and your LMS, we will offer the following new and improved functionality for fall 2021 classes.

Single sign on functionality:

NEW AND IMPROVED assignment and grade services:
